Watchmen

Release date: At cinemas everywhere March 6

Cert: 18

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, the film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity….but who is watching the Watchmen?

With the highly anticipated Watchmen film on the horizon we figured it was a good time for a competition. Up for grabs is the awesome companion piece Watching the Watchmen given to us by Titan Books.   Paramount Pictures UK have also supplied us with some goodies pictured above which you can also win and this means there are plenty of runner up prizes. All you need to do is enter our competition The Lost Watchman .

Voted among Time magazine’s 100 Best Novels from 1923 to the present, a perennial bestseller over the past twenty years and widely considered the greatest graphic novel of all time, WATCHMENis a gripping, labyrinthine piece of comic art, which has earned an acclaimed place in modern literary history.

Now, you can enjoy the ultimate companion to the comics masterpiece, as artist Dave Gibbons gives his own account of the genesis of WATCHMEN in this dust-jacketed hardback volume, opening his vast personal archives to reveal excised pages, original character designs, page thumbnails, sketches and much more, including posters, covers and rare portfolio art. Featuring the breathtaking design of Chip Kidd and Mike Essl, WATCHING THE WATCHMEN is both a major art book in its own right, and the definitive companion to the graphic novel that changed an industry.

So what do you need to do to be in the chance to win?  Well we want you to come up with a new (lost) Watchman to join the team. We want a name and some details about the character. You can be as brief or as detailed as you like about the character.  Our fave one wins the book. Stay tuned though as there may be an opportunity for some runners up prizes.

Entries need to be in by the release date of the film which is March 6th. Please email your entries to us at [email protected]

Good Luck !
